Keep it classy with this timeless sweater style. Cardigans are one of my personal favorites when it comes to the knit department simply because of how effortless they are. Plus, with the flexibility of being able to shrug it on and off in a pinch is also quite convenient. I love everything from cropped cardigans to more longline silhouettes for the ultimate cozy feel.

However, you cannot get much cozier than an oversized pull-over sweater. Come wintertime, this is the only thing I really want to wear. In particular, large knits just make for a much comfier outfit while still having the ability to be dressed up. For instance, on a last Sunday, you could catch me wearing this oversized sweater with a pair of legging. Only to find me wearing the same one out to dinner, styled with a pair of leather pants and heels.
Over the years, sweater vests have totally grown on me! They are great for layering, especially in the wintertime. They also tend to have a certain charm that other sweater iterations don’t have. For those who want to dip into academia aesthetic territory, stick to neutral sweater vests such as this one. But for those who seek something a little more out-of-the-box, try your hand at a saturated sweater vest.
Fair Isle Print
There is something about fair isle prints in the wintertime that make these the best sweaters to invest in. The pattern screams traditional cold weather gear, perfect for nailing down that chic aprés ski look that is highly coveted these days. For a casual, weekend warrior outfit, style your favorite fair isle printed sweater with some denim and you’re ready to go.

As a fun bonus, I wanted to include boleros (also known as a shrug) into this guide of the best sweaters to invest in. These are detachable sleeves that you can add to almost any outfit you can think of. In particular, I have developed a love for knit bolero sleeves. Not only are they incredibly chic, but they can easily winterize any of your favorite sleeveless tops.
